Landmines planted by Sri Lanka Army (SLA), in the area between Ariyaalai and Kozhumpuththu’rai in Jaffna where people were allowed to resettle, exploded Friday around 7:00 p.m seriously injuring three youths transporting sand in a tractor, sources in Jaffna said. The injured youths are admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) in Jaffna Teaching hospital.

The injured youths are J. Jude Wilson, 21, C. Sugithasaran, 22, from Kozhumpuththu’rai and T. Sujanthan from Ariyaalai.
